Appears that the driver of the red car downshifted and got into trailing throttle oversteer, then over-corrected...
Cold tires should not be trusted. Real pity.....

Same thing happened to me at Run and Gun several years ago, a cobra in front of me down shifted to get set up to turn left into the infield portion of the track after the start / finish line and selected 1st gear (instead of 3rd), I moved left and applied brakes and watched the cobra go right, left, right and touch the wall. When the dust cleared only the tail light was broken but I think he is still trying to get the crap out of his seat. All in all he did a good job correcting the car at 130+mph.
